Hrmm...

It could be a fuse... but I'm really not sure.
Well, get some new fuses for it, and see what happens then.

Just wondering, this wouldn't be a rectifier problem would it? (asking other people)

how long have you had it?
i take it you turn the Standby on as well?
did you take a power surge in your crib?
have you plugged it into another outlet and tried?

blown fuse would mean no light either right? you said the light comes on?
can you explain or take pics of the power tubes? do they look greyed or whited out? or cracked like a light bulb?
#8
um...right

more detail please. what do the tubes look like and does the red light still come on? does other stuff work in the outlet you are on? Reset button on outlet maybe?

i ask cause i have a ton of lightening right now, but i'm surge protected.

*goes to unplug amp*

guitar volume is up?
cable is secure in amp and guitar?
tone knobs are up on guitar?
effect pedals have been taken out of mix?
amp volume is up on both channels?
Standby is ON? (up position)
Gain is up
any footswitch has been removed?
other stuff works in power socket no power drain?

umm

This is a puzzling situation.
Check the gear page (different forum)
They have a more knowledgeable technical guys over there than here.
UG usually can help, but this is a weird problem.

Wait, you didn't unplug the speakers from the amp did you at one point?

odd.

power works, no tube glow or sound, blah ba blah...Where's Roc?

How old is it again?

the only thing that makes sense would be if the Standby switch was not turned on/up but obviously you know what you are doing so - need Techy. Good luck.

check to make sure all the tubes are seated correctly in the sockets. Since the power light is coming on, it's probably not the mains fuse on the back. There are however fuses inside that amp, besides the mains fuse on the back panel. If it's under warranty, have Peavey check it out for you.

Wow. That's an unlikely problem.

I can imagine it being a HT fuse inside the chassis itself having blown, removing a txformer centre tap or something, or perhaps if the heaters are DC powered and a fuse has blown... That's rather unusual you see, however.
